Some points to remember:
1. I know; when we decide to create a dish using a wine; the first question to answer is which wine to use. With all the gathered information; I believe that the wine labeled as cooking wine is a big no-no. Reason being – The wine which is not fit for drinking will not provide the dish with good flavours. A good quality wine is a must for a tasty dish. Remember the flavours in your wine will complement the flavour of your sauce flawlessly.
2 . It is advisable to use dry white wines for cooking when you don’t want to add sweetness to the dish.
3 . As you cook using wine the alcohol will evaporate which will extract the flavour of the wine and add it to the dish. At the same time do not add too much wine to the dish because it will cause it to be difficult to reduce.
4 . Cook the pasta according to the instructions mentioned on the packet.
5 . I suggest to crush the fresh garlic with mortar and pestle rather then chopping it. The garlic when crushed and used in a dish is much more flavoursome.
